Wonderful grandfather and storyteller to Matthew Taylor (Kaela), Stephanie Snow (Brandon), Sara Hall (Matthew), David Chubb, Ben Taylor (Brittany), Andrew Bradley (Maddy), Joshua Bradley (Keisha) and sweet great grampy to 7 and one on the way. Also survived by two sisters, Audrey LeBlanc and Ethel Marcus.
Predeceased by brothers Wallace, Garfield, George and Harold; sisters Beatrice Taylor, Mildred Zeigler, Dorothy Stuart, Blanche McCullough, Maud Dupuis, Helen Driscoll and Verna Taylor.
Clarence was a very hardworking, generous man who had a great faith in God. A true gentleman he loved his family more than anything and it showed. He was a jack of all trades and he excelled at all. He always had a pep to his step. A weaver, welder, realtor, builder and a land developer, he was fortunate to retire at age 53 only to continue to work nonstop well into his 80's tending to his garden, roses and trimming his trees if the deer would allow him. He loved his many trips to the grocery store, game shows and his marathon Phase 10 games. He loved to talk and tell his stories and we will miss him and his stories immensely.
The family would like to thank Dr. Graham MacNeil, Home Care by Design caregivers Allison, Carolyn and Elaine and KV Extra Mural for their exemplary care over the years. Without this he would not have been able to fulfill his wishes to stay at home.
A private funeral service will take place and a memorial service will follow at a later date to be announced.
Arrangements are under the care of Kennebecasis Community Funeral Home, 152 Pettingill Road, Quispamsis, (849-2119).
Memorial donations may be made to Kings Way Assembly, NB Heart Centre or charity of the donor’s choice. Online condolences may be placed at: www.KennebecasisFH.com
